One visitor from Oklahoma titled his review from December of 2011, “Bayside retreat”: “We recently stayed in the Bayshore cottage (in) December and had a wonderful time. The room was immaculate and the food was exceptional. Robert was extremely helpful and we loved being pampered. Our only regret was that our stay was not longer!”
A woman from Tennessee wrote in part: “My two sisters and I stayed in the Bayshore cottage for our summer vacation together! The view from the cottage is beautiful, and it is even breathtaking at sunset. The bay can be seen from the windows, or you can enjoy it up close while lying in a hammock on the pier.”
A comment from a guest, who stayed at the Cottages in August, reads, “If you are looking for a place where magic exists, all you have to do is spend a weekend at Point Clear Cottages on Mobile Bay. Spectacular breakfasts served on the the pier prepared by the talented Miss Joan, to technicolor sunsets enjoyed from a rocking chair.

It is a place you will remember with a smile in your heart for many years.”
